The main way to post to this site is via Twitter. Using this method your post will appear instantly! When Tweeting from the location of the crash (make sure you have the Twitter location features turned on) – either as a witness or a victim – simply tweet the details of the crash to @bikewitness. Specify in your tweet whether you were a victim or witness. You can include a photo or other image when posting! Your post will then appear on the site. The witness and victim can now connect via twitter. If you need to make corrections, categorize the post as a “witness” or “victim”, provide additional information, or delete or change the post, you can then log in on to the site via twitter to modify your post or to contact the witness or victim. A log of you posts will be kept under your sign-in account.

What if I Don’t have a Facebook or Twitter Account?
We recommend using the site via twitter or Facebook. However, if you do not have a Facebook or Twitter account the site can still be used as well. On the main page next to the Facebook and Twitter symbols is a login button. Click the button to create an account via WordPress. After creating a user name and providing an email address, you will be sent a password from WordPress. We are attempting to create an easier alternative login process which we hope to have available in the near future.
This site works anywhere in the world that Google Maps works 🙂
This site was designed to connect people who witnessed or were involved in a crash.
We are still in Beta and hope to add additional features as we gain feedback from our users.
Enjoy the site and bike safely!
